Well, I fell off the bandwagon. Not horribly, but I haven’t done p90x3 in a couple of weeks. I could lie and tell you it’s because I haven’t had time, or I could just tell you the truth and say that I chose to do other things. I may have had a bad meal here and there, but I’ve been eating good too. With end of school activities picking up, work, concerts, and travel…I just haven’t felt like working out when I do have the time. I want to relax. I’ll get back on the bandwagon, but it may be spotty for the next couple of weeks. My guess is that it’ll be easier for me to want to do it when school is out for the kids.
Last night I had a winy child who just did NOT want anything to do with homework. He was in tears doing homework. It was easy work, but I think he’s about done for the school year. He has summer brain and sitting down writing words in ABC order, followed by reading 2 books was not something he wanted to do. He finished and all was fine, but this is becoming a nightly thing at our house. Only a few more weeks! We’ve been sharing a spring cold at our house too. To top off the illness train, my gallbladder reminded me how much it hated me on Friday night and I was up for most of the night.
Last week was a bit of a whirlwind. When you travel in the middle of a school week with 2 kids, it’s more stressful. You have to make sure that everything is ready for those days you are gone and then when you get back it seems like it takes a few days to get back to normal for us. This trip was for pleasure, not work related. We took a trip to Atlanta to try to catch a glimpse of them filming The Walking Dead and then we saw Lady Gaga in concert. We got to see them setting Terminus up for filming, but they started filming the day after we left. I was on a mission to see Norman Reedus, and he was literally less than a mile away from me that day. I didn’t know this until the following day…one day I will meet this man. One day…..
Lady Gaga: let me just say that I’ve always been a fan of her music, but watching her perform can sometimes be painful for me. She has DIE HARD fans, including my husband, and frankly, I was scared of what kind of characters I’d come into contact with while we were there. I can’t even begin to tell you how AWESOME the show was. I can’t remember the last time I had that much fun! We sang, we danced, and we laughed with some pretty cool people who sat behind us. Even my throat was scratchy when we left from singing so much. The outfits some people wore though. Some were pretty amazing, while others were less than great, but they were all fun to look at. If you ever get the chance to see Lady Gaga in concert…do it. Seriously, she puts on one of the best shows. Don’t take your child though…there were a few kids there and they saw more of her than they should have seen. Hell, I saw more of her than I should have seen.
Next show we’re going to see: Bruno Mars…I’m kind of excited about this one! I mean, who doesn’t want to listen to Bruno Mars serenade you while watching him dance? You’re not human if you raised your hand! That show is in a few weeks.
Next week is another busy week! My youngest will graduate from 3K, we are heading to the beach for about 4 days, and my oldest will turn 7. I can’t say much more about him getting older because I seriously might cry! I wanted a child so bad and God gave me that beautiful child! He’s such a mommy’s boy and I get extremely emotional when it comes to my kids! He is such a good kid and I’m not just saying that. He’ll have his birthday with us at the beach on Saturday. Then on the 31st he’ll have his birthday party with his friends at the local bowling ally. I’m a little nervous because there’s A LOT of kids invited. Is it wrong to hope half can’t make it? He just makes so many friends and he doesn’t want to leave anyone out. FYI: even if half can’t make it, there will still be about 15 kids there. Whew! He didn’t get to have a party last year because I had just had a complete abdominal hysterectomy and could hardly move around. He deserves a party this year!
I’ve rambled enough! Let’s get this going! Have a great day!
